I have the hardest time finding pencil skirts I like. Something about the shape just never works for my body type. So, when I found this exposed zipper skirt I fell head-over-heels in love. The zipper allows you to make the slit as high or as low as you like which, I found, helps me make it sit better on my body. Win! Ps. I got this skirt using Ebates. You NEED to be using this program if you aren’t! You click through to your favorite stores websites via the Ebates site and then you get cash back on all your purchases. No catches, they just mail you a cheque with your cash back. I use it every time I shop online and love it!


I also really like this olive bow blouse. Lace up tops are everywhere this season, but this is the first time I have found one that is work appropriate. It’s a great compliment to the pencil skirt and the black and crocodile print heels! A perfect work day look! 


In other news, I am heading out on vacation tomorrow afternoon for a week and a half. I’m off to Toronto to visit friends and then heading to Aruba with my mother for a week. I am very much looking forward to it, though I *may* have gone a bit overboard on my book shopping… (see my instagram story for more haha)

    I like the understated bow but especially love the shoes and love that zipper on the side!

      The zipper is great right!?! I love that its functional as opposed to decorate. Its a nice change to be able to control the height of the slit. And yes, the shoes are so fun! Thank you for stopping by!
